Karori Arts & Crafts (KACC) welcomes new members. We foster artistic expression across a diverse range of arts and crafts that feature in this website. Membership is open to anyone with an interest in arts and crafts or any of our special interest groups. You do not have to be a Karori resident to join KACC, we have members from all over Wellington and the greaterWellington region.
If you enjoy working in a fun, social environment that encourages creativity in:
- art: painting, drawing, printmaking, photography, mixed media, paper crafts, collage, calligraphy and bookmaking
- craft: quilting/patchwork, embroidery, knitting, crochet, book binding/making, or textile art - think about joining us.
The majority of our activities are untutored groups who already have the skills required in their chosen art or craft. The remainder of the weekly activities focus on art classes that cover beginners through to intermediate level artists. These classes run in 8 week blocks see our class and activities page for more information. Workshops are open to members and non-members with approximately 3-4 each term on offer.
We have a range of Children's Art classes on Mon, Tues and Thurs after-school these focus on drawing, painting, printmaking and 3D sculpture with a different focus each term. More details feature on our class and activities page.

Join our members to reflect upon the significance of WW1 on the 100th anniversary of the Gallipoli landing. Our members have been knitting, stitching, painting, drawing and card-making with a central poppy theme. In this display, we respect those whose lives were lost, both military and civilian, those whose lives were irrevocably changed and those whose conscience set them aside from mainstream opinion of that time. The display includes:
- handcrafted poppies,
- antique WW1 handkerchiefs,
- paintings. mixed media and collage,
- postcards and photos.
Tea, Coffee, ANZAC biscuits and cards available for a gold coin donation to the Karori RSA.
Below you will see a section of the children's poppy collage from Term 1 that will be in the display. Children from 5-12 years of age were involved with this.
